Moto Z3 Play spotted at Geekbench with Snapdragon 660 SoC, Android 8.1 Oreo


We all know that Lenovo-owned Motorola Mobility has scheduled an event in Brazil, which is taking place on June 6th. At this event, the firm is expected to announce the Moto Z2 Play‘s successor—Moto Z3 Play—as per the invites sent. In the past few days, the handset’s detailed configuration has already been revealed online, and some of them still seem to be unfolding ahead of the launch event. Well, we say this because we have spotted the Moto Z3 Play listing on Geekbench. Considering the results, the Z3 Play can be seen pitching with 1299 points in the single-core test, and 4851 points in the multi-core test. Let’s check what else the results have revealed.

Moto Z3 Play: Geekbench

Speaking in detail about the listing, we can see that the Moto Z3 Play is powered by an octa-core 1.61GHz Snapdragon 660 SoC. The handset comes equipped with 4GB of RAM and is running on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system. There’s no doubt that 4GB RAM variant will be paired with 64GB internal storage, whereas the other variants will pack 2GB RAM + 16GB storage, and 3GB RAM + 32GB memory.

The Z3 Play will indeed offer superior performance compared to its predecessor which came with the Snapdragon 626 SoC, and scores 896 points in the single-core and 4573 points in the multi-core test. Anyway, the phone’s performance will surely depend on how it handles the day-to-day tasks, instead of the numbers revealed by the benchmark listing.

Moto Z3 Play: Rumoured Features

Moving on to the other aspects of the Z3 Play, rumors suggest it will sport a 6.01-inch AMOLED “Max Vision” display and with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The handset will feature a dual-12MP camera setup at the rear, and an 8-megapixel camera at the front for selfies and video calling. If the rumored camera specs of the Z3 Play are accurate, it will certainly be an upgrade over the Z2 Play which had a 12-megapixel single sensor at the back and a 5-megapixel front camera.

Underneath, the Z3 Play is supposed to pack in a 3000mAh battery that might offer fast charging support. The phone will also support various Mods, including some popular ones such as the Gaming Mod, Speaker Mod, and several others. Apart from these, this time we expect to see the 5G Moto Mod as well, which will be able to provide 5G connectivity for the handset in the near future.
